Jury to decide at Kakavelos’ fate at murder trial
The jury in the Georgios Kakavelos murder trial is now deliberating.
Closing arguments in the case wrapped up on Monday.
Kakavelos — the owner of a Johnstown sub shop — and James Duffy are accused of killing Allyzabeth Lamont in 2019.
Prosecutors say Kakavelos was broke, and he owed the state and the IRS a combined $170,000. They say Lamont threatened to report Kakavelos’ alleged financial fraud to the Department of Labor.
Duffy has already accepted a plea deal in the case.
Kakavelos could be sentenced to life in prison without parole if he’s convicted of first-degree murder.
